  Lawka Dotha Mahn Aung

 

Myanmar

The Lawka Dotha Mahn Aung Pagoda in Inwa (Ava), features a tall and rather steep tapering, white stupa that is crowned with a golden umbrella or hti and guarded by eight chintha that encircle the base, which itself has the contours of a lotus.

 

The rectangular complex, built on a elevated platform has a brick surrounding wall, with at each corner a masonry edifice. To the east of the stupa is the temple's prayer hall or vihara, which houses a seated Buddha image and consists of an open, sala-like building, with a wooden roof and white enclosing wall.
